If you’re a New Mexican, whether you’ve moved away or not, there is one thing that you cannot take away. That one thing is the love for Hatch Chile. Here are ten mouth watering recipes you might want to prepare.
1.) Poor Man’s Burrito
Poor Man’s Burrito
Summary: A Hatch chile wrapped up with garlicky cream cheese in a flour tortilla becomes a Poor Man’s Burrito. Perfect for tailgating or any party!
- 1 large flour tortilla
- Whipped cream cheese
- Garlic powder
- 1 Hatch chile,roasted, skinned, seeded and cut into strips
- Lay the tortilla flat. Spread lightly with cream cheese. (An offset spatula is a handy tool with which to do this.) Sprinkle lightly with garlic powder. Lay chile strips on top.
- Roll up tightly. Cut in half and place on plate. Enjoy!
The original verbal recipe called for garlic salt, but I found that too salty (the cream cheese has some salt in it), so garlic powder is my preferred sprinkle.
Variations: Tailgate Teasers
To make Tailgate Teasers, cut the burrito crosswise in small pieces and turn them on their side to show the spiral effect.
